Movie: Darby O’Gill and the Little People (1959)


Darby (Albert Sharp) is

an aging caretaker who

tells many tales of the

little people. Michael

McBride (a pre-Bond

Sean Connery) is his

replacement who falls

for Darby’s daughter,

Katie (Janet Munro). Most people of the town

don’t quite believe Darby’s tales, but many humor

him out of respect for the art of Irish storytelling.

Fun songs crop up throughout the film, including

one crooned by young Connery. Though this is an

American film, produced by Disney, it brings out

the Irish in ye, and is ranked by some as the #1 St.

Patrick’s Day movie.

Celtic Flutes and Guitar

Meet at 6:45pm from the front lobby

for shuttle or walk over to this event.

Sharon Fogarty is based in Winston-Salem and is a

graduate of music performance from the University

of North Carolina School of the Arts. She began her

musical journey on the Irish whistle, then switched

to flute. She studied classically under the

direction of Debra Reuter-Pivetta and Philip Dunigan.

Five years ago she found herself back in the

world of Celtic music which led her to co-found the

group Immigrant’s Daughter, a Celtic music group

consisting of flutes, fiddle and harp. She also performs

with a Celtic rock group called Brynmor.

Luke Payne is a musician also based in Winston- Salem,

North Carolina. He holds a Master of Music

degree from UNCSA, where he studied classical guitar

under Joseph Pecoraro, and is currently studying

Hindustani classical music on the sarod with

Gaurang Doshi. He performs frequently in diverse

musical contexts, from jazz to classical to pop. He is

a member of the band Lean In, and has been awarded

a grant from the Forsyth County Arts Council to

complete his debut album of original songs.

Luke and Sharon unite their talents to bring you an

evening of dance tunes, such as jigs, reels and hornpipes,

and some slow airs and songs like “Star of the

County Down” and “Foggy Dew.” We hope you can

come out to experience the magic of Celtic music.

Author Study a Grand Success

The group study of the stories of Flannery O’Connor

has just wrapped up, receiving rave reviews (well,

okay, not everyone loved the stories, but most

seemed to enjoy the discussion). Therefore, we’re

looking to continue the series with studies of two

other authors, possibly Annie Dillard and Wendell

Berry, but, as always, we’d love to have suggestions

from you! Watch for a coming announcement of the

date and time for this series, and let Bert (ext. 1590)

know of any authors you’d like to study.

Recreation News


Place, The Fitness Room, Jule’s Pools

The Gathering Place will continue to be open

most of the time during renovation of Corpening

building, but will close for a brief period to install

sprinkler systems and electrical work. We will

continue to hold classes in this space but you can

gain access through the single RED elevator in the

Passageway. The main Corpening elevators will

be closed during renovation.

This holds true for the Fitness room on 2nd floor

as well. You may continue to use the fitness

room but please use the RED elevator in the passageway

and please remember to wear your PET!

The swimming pool, aka“Jule’s Pool,” will also be

open until construction begins in that area. However,

the Corpening parking lot will be closed to

residents, staff and visitors because it is a construction

zone. To access the pool please park in

the administration lot at Berrier building. Come

into the reception area and continue to the pool

table. Go through the door at the window seat

(across from the pool table) and follow the path

to the Terrace entrance or to avoid the hill - take

the McPherson elevator to 3rd floor and walk

across to the Corpening Terrace to the pool entrance.

This will allow you access into the pool

area. If you live nearby on campus you may walk

down the steps at Bayberry and enter the pool

through the Terrace entrance. Watch for more

details in a cubby letter and keep an eye on TV 6

for updates on changes. Now is the time to practice

Healthier You! Kick-Off

Monday, March 5, 2:00 pm, Bay Window

“I have two doctors, my left leg and my right

leg,” wrote British author George Trevelyn in

Nearly a century later, modern medical experts

echo the same advice: get up and walk!

Our walking program starts Monday, March 5,

and continues through Friday, March 30. We’ll

track the distances and amount of time you

walk, and in April will celebrate all participants’

accomplishments with coffee and doughnuts

(just one!) Whether you prefer walking solo or

with a group, please follow these walking tips:

Wear comfortable shoes and clothing.

Always wear sunscreen.

Walk against traffic.

Wear light-colored clothing.

Avoid walking at dusk.

Wear your PET.

Breathe Better for Fun and Profit

Guest Instructor: David MacMahon, N.D.

Tuesdays, March 6 – April 24

1:00 pm, Jean Steelman Chapel

You read that right - breathing better is both fun

and profitable. Will it make you rich? Yes, if you

consider that being healthier, feeling better and

enjoying life more are worth a lot. Most people

take breathing for granted until they have trouble,

like shortness of breath or painful breathing,

or asthma, emphysema or any other breathing

disorder. Then they quickly realize how critical

breathing is, not just for life, but for quality of

life. Breathing well can help relieve pain, reduce

stress, lower high blood pressure, make everyday

tasks easier, raise energy levels, sharpen

mind/brain activity, increase immune function

and improve quality and length of sleep. There

is a lot more to learn about breathing well,

including simple, easy techniques to address a

wide range of physical, mental, emotional and

spiritual issues. Come get your share of the fun

in this 8-week series of classes led by David M.

McMahon, N.D, a board certified holistic health

practitioner based in Winston-Salem.

Classes are at 1:00 pm every Tuesday beginning

March 6, 2012, in the Jean Steelman Chapel.

Save your seat by signing up at the bay window.

Deadline to sign up is Monday, March 5th. Cost

is $15.00 for the 8-week series; your account will

be charged.

Croquet is for everyone!

There is scheduled croquet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1:30 pm; however, the court and

equipment shed are open and available for practice or play anytime the weather cooperates.

Six-wicket croquet is for everyone (guys and gals) so if you are interested come by the

court when you see someone playing. For more information and/or instruction on six-wicket

croquet, its techniques and strategy, there are DVDs available for loan or call:
